The new juvenile center design focuses on rehabilitation of juvenile offenders through education, skills training and alternative programming using the Louisiana Model of Juvenile Justice Reform.
The Terrebonne Parish Juvenile center houses 32 juveniles in 4 pods. Each pod has 8 individual sleeping rooms which share a common dayroom and showers. In addition to the housing pods the building includes visitation, classrooms, intake, gym, kitchen/ dining facility, laundry and miscellaneous staff office space. The facility was designed to meet Category 4 Hurricane Requirements. This project is a joint venture.
